Lush Bath Bomb | Love Locket


When the Lush Valentine's range was released online, I instantly gravitated towards the only bath bomb in the collection, Love Locket. It's definitely the priciest bath bomb I've ever bought from there at £6.95, and if I'm being completely honest, I don't think it's worth it.

Love Locket is quite a large bath bomb, probably on the same scale as Golden Wonder. It's larger than the regulars, but not by much. It's lovely to look at, a pretty pink and yellow heart inspired by necklaces containing photos of your loved ones. I also found the fragrance quite pleasant - girly and floral with some sweetness. 

But how does the bath bomb perform? Apparently you're supposed to crack this open (spoiler alert: there's a smaller bomb inside) and use the pieces separately, but I wanted to get the full effect without the hassle of cutting it up with a knife or whacking it with a hammer. So I threw the bath bomb in its entirety into the water, and by the time I got my camera in focus the entire thing had fizzled away! I've never seen a Lush product dissipate so quickly, and I felt quite underwhelmed.

The water transformed into a hot pink shade, spurting out confetti hearts and a stream of glitter, but I was still disappointed. I've had similarly exciting bath bombs in the past such as Golden Wonder, Shoot for the Stars, Twilight and Space Girl but they came in at half the price of Love Locket - so unless you're planning on splitting it up and getting three baths out of this, I wouldn't recommend it.

  1. I saw this online too, but definitely way too expensive for a bath bomb! I sometimes try to cut them up but half crumbles away and ends up being wasted, so I couldn't see myself getting along with this. I'd rather buy 3 Space Girls!

  4. That is very expensive for a bath bomb, although it did look very pretty! I would really recommend the Comforter Bubble Bar- its about £4 and you can get about 9 uses out of it :)

  6. I've read another review this this isn't quite as special as it looks but the water is very pretty. I don't think it's worth the hefty price though.

  9. It's such a shame this wasn't very exciting - that's half of the fun with Lush products! Leaves your water a beautiful colour though :) x

  10. That's so annoying it was disappointing, I agree it's quite expensive for one use. Your bath looked so pretty nonetheless xxxx

  11. It's so lovely to look at it but it sounds like it wasn't worth shelling out almost $10 (did the math) especially for just one bath. I love the color, though, it's quite stunning, but still. I really want to take a look at their shower gels! :D The scent descriptions make them sound really fruity and delicious!

  12. Sounds like an interesting product, but it's too bad it wasn't amazing. Bath bombs are quite expensive!

  13. This leaves the water the most beautiful colour! Sounds perfect for a relaxing bath, but the price tag is a little much.

  14. The price tag is a bit much so I'd definitely try and crack this open and use it separately if that's how it's supposed to be used. A little disappointing that it fizzled out so quickly :(

  16. It's so cute! But I agree on the disappointment - whenever I've wanted to use a bath bomb I have expected a bit more excitement than they usually give me. Lovely post despite that! :)

  17. I saw this one online and got really excited but I totally agree it's very over priced. I loved the twilight one which was like half the price! I still am tempted to try but I think I would do what you said and break it up to use a few times.

    Beautiful blog! Followed :)

  19. Oh no, I'm so disappointed! It looks so lovely in the pictures I'd already decided to buy it and then I read the review - such a shame and the price seems completely unjustified! x
